    Take the cover off and mess with it if you have to but first try holding down the record button for a few seconds, it might try to eject the phantom tape. You might need to get inside and manually lift up the tray type thing that the tape rests on.

    Buy a new one, put the old one in the box, and return it. Or get one of those DVD cleaning discs/kits.

    nevermind. smoke, sparks, and a loud pop came out of it when i was trying to fix it, and now the little lights wont even come on. hopefully the extended warranty is still in effect.

    That will be perfect. The kid at Sears probably doesn't care enough to look it over very well when you do return it.
